Moved from Mosquitoes.

Definitely Culex, I would put it in Cx. pipiens.

 
Thanks Omar and Sean
We've had a few frosts, so I was surprised to still find a mosquito.

 
you will
find Culex in the winter. them, culiseta, anopheles, and coquilletidia i think) in the north overwinter as adults. her abdomen is swollen and white because it has her energy for the winter (fat bodies)
